Hear the wind, feel the rain, smell the lavender, and laugh along with Dog. In this ecologically inspired tale, a French shepherd sets out to plant a forest and transform a barren wasteland acorn by acorn. This uplifting and unforgettable story shows us the difference one man (and his dog) can make to the world. In its eleven years of touring, The Man Who Planted Trees has become a favorite of audiences and presenters around the world. "It is very, very rare to find something that appeals as effortlessly to children and adults as this magical show,” raves the Scotsman.
